Lei Powell, Editor 




THE NIGHTINGALE PLEDGE 

/ solemnly pledge myself before God and in (he pres- 
ence of this assembly: 

To pass my life in purity and to practice my pro- 
fession faithfully. 

I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mis- 
chievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any 
harmful drug. 

1 will do all in my power to elevate the standard of 
my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal 
matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs 
coming to my knowledge in the practice of my profession. 

With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his 
work, and devote myself to the welfare of those com- 
mitted to my care. 





THEY WALK 

She walks — the nurse in white, at night 
To see if patients sleep, 
To every room, beside each bed 
The night watch doth she keep. 

She walks — the nurse in blue; up hills, 
Down valleys dark and deep, 
In storms that beat against her will 
Her night ivatch doth she keep. 

She walks — in spirit with a light 
Where soldiers cannot sleep. 
All through the long and troubled night 
Her gentle watch doth keep. 

They walk — with radiant faces bright, 
Each shepardess of sheep. 
In garments that are spotless white 
They fold us in for sleep. 

— Marie Charlotte Buckley.

"Tempus fugit!" Can it be that just three years ago our little group "set sail" for James 
Walker Memorial to unite in the profession of nursing? 

On January thirty-first and on August thirty-first of nineteen hundred and forty-one our 
class was greeted at the Nurses' Home by our Director of Nurses and by veteran students of six 
months training. From that moment we started working toward the first goal — our caps. 

The first six months having passed and our caps firmly anchored on our heads (those were the 
good ole days when bobbie pins were plentiful) we stopped attending classes from nine A. M. 
until five P. M. and spent more time in actual nursing. Mrs. Chase placidly accepted our neglect, 
probably knowing that her leisure would be short-lived; for preclinical students, like "bad pen- 
nies", are always turning up. 

Our Freshman year found us making new friends, acquiring broader knowledge and becoming 
adjusted to our new routine; and what adjustment! Our seniors must have been frequently 
amused when one of us would dash madly down to the Diet Kitchen and ask for the diathermy 
or blithely hand Dr. Robertson the "pick-ups" from a lysol solution when he wanted sterile thumb- 
forceps. 

We were successfully launched upon our Junior year by election of class officers as follows: 
President — Lei Powell; Vice-President, Kathleen Davis; Secretary-Treasurer — Marguerite Johnson. 
At this time narrow black bands, which we jokingly referred to as our "ratings" were added to 
our caps. Dr. Jerre Freeman and Mrs. Violet Polvogt were chosen as our sponsors. They gallantly 
responded by inviting us on a hayride and weiner roast. What matter that the horses were unable 
to storm the hill and we crawled out and pushed — our spirits remained undaunted, but not a 
weiner remained uneaten! 

The social highlight of the year was the annual Junior-Senior Banquet given in honor of the 
Seniors. As a token of respect to them Nightingale Lamps were given in memory of another 
nurse who fought a great battle in another war. Dr. Donald B. Koonce, in his talk on "Noblesse 
Oblige," gave us a greater understanding of the work which lay ahead. 

At last! Classes were over and we turned our attention to the beaches. The much anticipated 
summer vacations had begun. 

On returning, we received the coveted Senior band. The implied dignity of these newly 
decorated caps lifted our spirits and broadened our shoulders to assume added responsibility. Offi- 
cers elected were: President — Kathleen Davis; Vice-President — Tony Hines; Secretary and Treas- 
urer — Marguerite Johnson. 

The faith and confidence of the underclass women have warmed our hearts toward our chosen 
profession. For to feel that we can help them a little with their procedures and nursing problems 
binds us together, into what is prosaically known as "the School", in such a way that only a 
Senior can know. We hope that they as Seniors will find their associates as fine as the ones we 
have had.

CLASS PKOPHECY OF 1944 

All right, folks, close your eyes; hop aboard our Magic Carpet, and we'll whiz 
you into the future. This is 1954, ten years hence — Time marches on! As our 
Carpet breaks through the clouds, we find ourselves on the streets of "Lil Ole New York." 

We step off our Carpet and start for Times Square. Who is the first person we see? 
A street pedler selling her newest contribution to modern science, "The Double-Talking 
Preventor," which she willingly demonstrates. We immediately identify her as 
Doris Flowers. 

Next, while glancing over the new best sellers, we find that Esten Johnson and 
Irene Pulliam have just finished their first volume of "How to Win." 

Passing the Ritz Theatre, we were pleasantly surprised to see Margaret Carroll 
starring in "Beautiful But Dumb." Grace Taylor and her husband are among the 
many admirers present. 

The news flashes on the screen and Lowell Thomas gives us the latest events. Who 
is the first lady of the land? None other than Frances Smith. 

Next morning we rush down to the docks upon hearing that Alice Smith and 
Agnes Williams have just boarded the new luxury liner, "Sink or Float." They'll be 
missionaries in darkest Africa when next we hear from them. 

Back on 42nd Street, we run across a new Combination Fish Market and First Aid 
Station, run by those two "High-tiders," Gieula Fulcher and Joyce Mason. 

They tell us Thelma Warters has just walked away with high honors in the new 
sensational Talkathon. 

We drop in at the 213 story Rest Easy Hotel, owned by Hyacinth DeVane. One 
of Hyacinth's rooms is occupied by Lady Margaret Leigh, whose nurse companion is 
Madge Robbins. She informs us that Tony Hines has made quite a name for herself 
as photographer for Vogue. 

On leaving the hotel, we stroll over to Kathleen Davis' well known Fifth Avenue 
Dress Salon, where Joye Wise is a popular consultant. They told us that they had just 
heard from Doris Woodcock, who is instructor of First Aid in Atkinson. 

Just as we are leaving we run into Harriette Norris, who is the proud owner of an 
autographed copy of Marjorie Elmore's latest best seller, "Back to the Farm." By the way, 
Harriette has just finished a series of lectures on the original Southern Dialect at 
Radio City Music Hall. 

The afternoon edition of the New York Times carries a story of Maggie Hamm's 
great work in the hills of North Carolina, "Nursing on Horseback." 

"Dodie" Mann, Nina Scott and Geneva Watts are conducting a clinic on In- 
fant Welfare. 

Marguerite Johnson is now Executive Officer of Transcontinental Airline Hostesses. 
She informs us that Lei Powell, Ann Milton, "Dusty" Rhodes, and Frances Carr are 
on their fourth world cruise. (Those girls just can't stay away from the water). 

We finally located Hazel Smith. Her time is very limited. She is now principal 
speaker at the graduation exercises for The Deaf and Dumb Schools of the State. 

All right, folks, climb back on the carpet and Presto: — we're back in Dear Old 
James Walker in the year 1944. 

By Nerve Hall

City: Wilmington. 

Hospital: James Walker Memorial. 

We, the class of 1944, being of sound mind and strong body, realizing the eminence

it occasionally!

12. To Christine Whitfield, Tony Hines leaves her camera with instructions for 
time exposures. 



LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT

wonder what she is really like. 

14. To Dorothy Sanderson, Joyce Mason leaves her silver sandals and all her 
dance souvenirs.

16. To Vera Dale Allison, Ann Milton leaves all her Deep Books with a copy of 
"Bedside Esquire" as a chaser.

18. To Minerva Latham, Irene Pulliam leaves that "old vim and vigor" and "vitality" 
that has kept her constantly on the go for years. 

19. To Virginia Pearsall, Dusty Rhodes leaves her love of horses, and she doesn't 
mean the kind that Bing Crosby picks. 

20. To Edna Earle George, Madge Robbins leaves her black evening dress from 
Fifth Avenue (definitely from Fifth Avenue) to be worn at the end of six lessons. 

21. To Edna Moore, Alice Smith leaves the following records: "The Nutcracker 
Suite"; "The Peer Gynt Suite", all her "Strauss Waltzes" and any one record of 
"The Moonlight Sonata." 

22. To Lillian Bowen, Frances Smith leaves her ability to hit the high "c's" and 
still keep a straight face. 

23. To Julia Coleman, Grace Taylor leaves her neatness. (Won't someone else 
contribute?) 

24. To Virginia Harriss, Doris Woodcock leaves her good disposition. (Do you 
want it Virginia?) 

2 5. To Flora Biggs, Joye Wise leaves her alarm clock with a book entitled "The 
Best Tactics for Waking Each Student on Fourth Floor." 

26. To Mamie Smith, Thelma Warters leaves her numerous boy friends. 

27. To the Business Manager of The Epitome of '45, Margaret Carroll leaves her 
capacity for gold digging.

tion of purpose to accomplish the "impossible." 

Signed and Sealed on May 12, 1944. 
Nina Scott, 

Testator.
